My cup has made my cramps way worse. I used to have bad ones the first day now it's multiple days and they are bad. I even used a tampon when I couldn't take medicine because they hurt less. Why's it doing this I have a sm yuuki and I can't feel it in me it just makes bad cramps.

It's probably pushing on your cervix, my Diva cup did this. I don't know what the dimensions of a small Yuuki are, but it's probably either too long or too narrow- whichever seems more plausible.

I've had cramps with my small Yuuki too.
I figured it was too narrow, so that the rim was sitting too close and too tightly on my cervix, irritating it in the process.

If you're susceptible to cramps, make sure to get a cup that is among the softest and squishiest, but also wide enough to accommodate your cervix and go as easy as possible on it.

If this is one of your first periods using a cup, it is also possible that your body just needs to get used to the cup. Many people experience discomfort or an increase in cramps the first few cycles that they use a cup, but they go away once their bodies adjust.

Although, if you ask me, the intensity of the pain that you describe sounds like it's more than just simple adjustment issues.

Yup another one for 'it's probably too narrow'.

I never get cramps, I've had the occasional problem with my cups, in my case my cervix sits pointing towards my bottom at the start of my period, if I'm not careful it can become stuck between vaginal wall and the cup...which hurts like a SOB! I also found Divacup (small) too narrow so the cervix sitting in the rim was too tight and felt horrid.
